Beginner Exercise 195 / Solution

Solution - Follow up 1  

White almost fills the black eye with a killing shape, the farmer's hat.

Solution - Follow up 2  

If Black throws in at B2, White still almost fills the black eye with a killing shape, this time the crossed five.


W1 might look like a tesuji at the first glance, but after B2 Black is alive.

Failure - Follow up 1  

This looks similar to the success diagrams, but because of the liberty at a Black's eye isn't almost filled anymore. To almost fill White would need to play twice, but thus can't achieve a killing shape anymore. The result is seki.

Failure - Follow up 2  

If White tries to make a ko with W3, this fails as well as Black has enough liberties to crush the ko with B6.

Another failure  

W1 fails, after Black answer with B2 the best White can achieve is seki with W3.
